The Cute One (and His Brother) is representative of Austyn's 2020 theme: To remind myself that "humans are animals too." To practice forgiveness, kindness and listening to people without judgement. We are not aliens or gods but products of the earth just as the other animals are. My pieces are looking at the incredible reality of earthly evolution. I want to bring both evolutionary history and societal history into planetary perspective. It is easy to tear down and so difficult to create.
Austyn sculpts the rabbit and finishes it with hand drawn markings using graphite pencil. Along with His Brother, these are just a couple of pleasant lucky rabbits!
